A special screening of Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me sponsored by the Terraces of Boise filled The Egyptian Theatre in Boise, Idaho Wednesday night. Many future residents from the Terraces attended, and were also treated to a Q&A with Glen’s wife, Kim Campbell.
“He was the one who wanted to make this film — to show what living with Alzheimer’s was like. He wanted to remove the stigma of getting this diagnosis,” Kim told the audience, according to the Idaho Statesman.
Tim Mallad, Greystone first vice president of operations management services, directed the Q&A. About 700 people were in attendance for the film, which follows Glen on a cross-country farewell tour with his family shortly after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011.
Due to open this summer, the Terraces of Boise will be the state’s first and only life care community.
